Anthony wins 92nd S.F. City Championship

Jason Anthony of Fairfield captured the 92nd San Francisco City Championship, finally finishing off 18-year-old Max Ting of Atherton.

Anthony had the match in hand for most of the back nine of the afternoon round in the 36-hole final at TPC Harding Park before closing out the senior from Menlo School for a 3-and-1 victory.

“It was kind of getting away from me on the back nine,” said Anthony, who was the 2017 Northern California Golf Association Player of the Year. “You know, it’s a lot of golf. I’m 34 years old, playing against 18-year-olds.

“It’s a lot of golf and my body really did start to give out. Just needed to fight as hard as I could, and got it done.”

Simar Singh, a senior at Los Altos High who has committed to the University of Oregon, claimed the S.F. City Women’s Championship with a 4-and-3 victory over Aman Sangha, a sophomore at Cañada College in Redwood City, who is headed for Portland State.

“We’ve been playing with each other since I was eight years old and she was maybe 10,” Singh said. “I respect her game so much, and she is a great competitor and a great friend.”

Randy Haag of Orinda, the 1999 S.F. City champion, captured the Senior Division for the second time in three years by defeating Scott Anderson of Bakersfield, 4 and 3.

Mark Miller of Brentwood claimed the Super Senior division with a 4-and-3 victory over Mike Parnow of Sonoma. Miller won the Senior Division title in 2011.

In the Open Flights, the winners were: Tyler Burnes (Ken Venturi Flight), Matthew Fegley (George Archer Flight), Abi Vickram (Mayor Ed Lee Flight), Brad Payne (Sandy Tatum Flight), and Naputt Aroonchaipirom (Ray Pelligrini Flight).
